\n

\nSimon Woolford

\nThe former Raiders captain has the awards that show his pedigree, winning Rugby League Week Players Poll in 2005 for the category of \"Biggest Sook\". The hooker can also take credit for perfecting the art of diving before anyone else. Just think back to 2003, when playing against Parramatta he stopped an Eels attack by staying down to claim a dubious high shot.\n

\nBilly Slater

\nThis list wouldn't be complete without Slater, who likes to complain about everything and anything. The fullback is known for flopping and carrying on when being tackled and is constantly chatting away to the referee. The 33-year old has the voice to match and sounds like he's been sucking on a helium balloon all his life.

\n\nPuig Albert

\nWho is Puig Albert? The fullback was debatably the greatest French rugby league footballer of all-time and retired back in 1960. Albert was known to not tackle a player who had broke the line if he believed it would demonstrate the fault of his teammates for not previously making the tackle. The Frenchman argued it was other player's job to defend, his role was to attack. Unbelievable.

Whos The Biggest NRL Sook?

We look over past and present players to find the biggest sook that's played the game.

Tue, 18 Oct, 12:00 AM
There's been some fantastic whingers, whiners and typically soft players over the years. While fans will agree to disagree on who the biggest sook ever is, read on to see if your pick made our list.

Anthony Milford

Milford's a rising star but also one of the best sooks going around. The 22-year old loves a good lay-down to try and milk a penalty, only to stand up completely unharmed, before giving the referee a 10 second death-stare then finally playing the ball. It's the sort of behaviour that completely kills all forward momentum and Broncos forwards must hate it.

Benji Marshall

After leaving the Tigers for the challenge (in other words 'money') of rugby union, Marshall decided he couldn't hack having to actually learn how to play the sport and returned to the NRL. More recently, the 31-year old rejected a $300,000 contract offer from the Dragons, publically whinging “I know I’m worth more than that” to demand over $350,000 a season.

Dane Carlaw

The former Maroons back-rower consistently went missing when it mattered most and hardly gave the impression he enjoyed working up a sweat or spilling blood for the team. Carlaw retired in 2011 and is remembered as one of the softest players out. Former Test prop and ABC commentator, Greg Dowling, summed him up perfectly, saying Carlaw "looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane".

Jamie Soward

Soward has always been a touch precious. Leaving aside on-field antics, the 31-year old threw a fit when teased for being a cry-baby in 2014. The five-eighth labelled Beau Ryan a bully for a Footy Show segment known as 'Jamie Soward TV', essentially a harmless impersonation, which resulted in NSW hooker, Robbie Farah calling him out on Twitter.

Simon Woolford

The former Raiders captain has the awards that show his pedigree, winning Rugby League Week Players Poll in 2005 for the category of "Biggest Sook". The hooker can also take credit for perfecting the art of diving before anyone else. Just think back to 2003, when playing against Parramatta he stopped an Eels attack by staying down to claim a dubious high shot.

Billy Slater

This list wouldn't be complete without Slater, who likes to complain about everything and anything. The fullback is known for flopping and carrying on when being tackled and is constantly chatting away to the referee. The 33-year old has the voice to match and sounds like he's been sucking on a helium balloon all his life.

Puig Albert

Who is Puig Albert? The fullback was debatably the greatest French rugby league footballer of all-time and retired back in 1960. Albert was known to not tackle a player who had broke the line if he believed it would demonstrate the fault of his teammates for not previously making the tackle. The Frenchman argued it was other player's job to defend, his role was to attack. Unbelievable.
